PRM NGO Projects Benefiting Sri Lankan Refugees in India: Limited funding is available to support NGO activities that best meet the Bureau's priorities for Sri Lankan refugees in India as identified below. Proposed activities should primarily support Sri Lankan refugees in India. Proposals must focus on the following sectors: Protection, Shelter and Infrastructure, Water and Sanitation, and/or Livelihoods. Priority will be given to proposals from organizations that can demonstrate: (1) a working relationship with UNHCR and UNHCR funding and/or support for the proposed activities and/or overall country program; (2) a proven track record in providing proposed assistance to Sri Lankan refugees in Tamil Nadu, India; (3) evidence of coordination with development organizations and a well-developed transition strategy, and (4) appropriate targeting of beneficiaries in coordination with UNHCR and other relevant organizations. The following activities are priority areas for PRM in FY2010. - Protection. Priority protection activities include provision of reception services to incoming refugees and may respond to the needs of the nearly 30,000 stateless refugees who are eligible to regain their Sri Lankan citizenship per the Government of Sri Lanka's 2009 amendment to the Grant of Citizenship to Stateless Persons Act. Organizations also are encouraged to include a component addressing prevention of and/or response to GBV as part of their assistance programming. - Shelter and Infrastructure. Projects addressing shelter needs should comply with Sphere standards and be planned and undertaken with the involvement of beneficiary populations and local governments. Appropriate consideration should be given to norms and conditions in surrounding Indian communities. - Water and Sanitation. Water and sanitation remains a priority. Projects addressing wat/san should comply with Sphere standards. - Livelihoods. Projects may include a livelihoods support component; however, standalone vocational training not linked to income generating activities will not be considered for funding in FY 2010. Micro-credit projects for small enterprises have been successful in Tamil Nadu and may be appropriate within refugee communities.
